Overview

When Rome transgresses upon his father's domain that lays between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, Pacorus, a prince of the Parthian Empire, is sent to exact revenge. After a string of victories Pacorus and his men are captured in Cappadocia, clapped in chains and sent to Italy to live out the rest of their days as slaves. But fate intervenes and Pacorus and his companions are saved from a living hell by a renegade gladiator named Spartacus. In gratitude, Pacorus agrees to help Spartacus build his army as Rome musters its legions to crush the slave uprising. And so begins an epic adventure of glory and savagery played out across the length and breadth of Italy, as Spartacus defeats the armies of Rome and Pacorus leads his horsemen to victory after victory. But will Pacorous and the slave army escape from Italy, and will he win the love of the fierce and proud Gallia before the most powerful man in Rome, Marcus Licinius Crassus, takes the field against Spartacus?

    An absolutely fantastic telling of the Spartacus uprising and the happenings in the far east during the height of Roman power. A great read and a fantastic story. A must read for all military history buffs.

    Well worth reading

    This is the story of Pacorus, a Parthian prince who is captured by the Romans and sent to Italy to be a slave. Fortunately for him, he arrives in southern Italy as the Spartacus slave revolt is gathering momentum and is freed by Spartacus and his band of escaped gladiators. What follows is a tale of high adventure as Pacorus joins the slave rebellion and becomes the commander of the slave cavalry. There are plenty of battles, juicy characters and vivid descriptions of ancient Italy. It reads well and the story has pace. I would recommend it to all those who like historical fiction.
